One of the services we offer is a dramatized, personalized pre-wedding love story. It’s a unique way of sharing your story with your wedding guests. Every Love Story video is different, and we can incorporate interviews into the video as well.
All that’s being presented in this video is true historically, from the attire, to the gifts, to the venue, etc, and that meant that we shot their first date in Jonker Walk, Malacca! Thank God that Joanne could remember all the details! Well, men are always forgetful when it comes to these kinda things, eh? ;)
Tze Seong’s from Malacca, while Joanne’s from Negeri Sembilan and even though they are neighbours state-wise, they actually fell in love in Penang at Excel Point Community Church. While she was checking out the cool drummer-boy, he was checking her out on Facebook, and that’s how it all started.
Both were very natural on camera, especially with Tze Seong being the joker, all smiles, in front and behind the camera were genuine, and we had a great time shooting, especially in Malacca when we truly had fun ourselves! The cafe at the of the video is actually just off Jonker Walk, called Calanthe Art Cafe, and they were very kind to allow us to shoot many shots within the premise during peak hours!
It was a beautiful day to get married at Passion Road. Tears rolled, hugs were given and laughter filled the air. Heartfelt, handwritten vows were uttered by Roger and Cheryl… deep down, our own hearts swelled with love. This is why we do what we do. To record moments like these…

|“We are very very happy with how the same day edit pictures and video turned out. The way your team worked on our wedding day was truly impressive and very professional. We especially want to thank you for the energy and enthusiasm that you brought to the shoot, the way that you were directing us on how to pose and your creative ideas really shows in the pictures. We sometimes forget that you are pregnant and i think sometimes you forget too, when you were moving furniture and items out of the shots. The level of commitment that we have seen from you and your team in order to get the best shot is truly amazing, from your team being exposed to the heat and rays of the sun, to lying down on the floor or grass to get the best angles, to scouting for the best spots, and directing us not so photogenic people to look good in your shots.
On behalf of Roger, he would also like to say thanks for your patience during the shoots. As he was quite tense but you were always there to remind him to smile and relax.
We cannot express how much we love the same day edit photos and how much we appreciate the hard work that your team have put in.”

Their love story began as a chance meeting – two strangers enrolled as classmates back in 2001 during their A-Level studies.
“Aldrian was just hanging out with his cousin, Johnny, and refused to enter the classroom on his first day. – no pretty girls lah – he said. Minutes later, I brisked by with a friend, feeling truly nervous about my first day of college. As I passed Aldrian, I noticed that he was quite handsome too – but you don’t say these things out loud of course! Not long after, Aldrian sat next to me in that class…. and we have always been side by side ever since. Throughout the years we have truly become each other’s best friend and soul-mate.
After college, we came to the UK together to further our studies. Finally, after 10 years – after completing my PhD and all that hoo-ha of trying to settle down in London, we thought that the time was right. And it was just perfect.
We now live together in our very own love nest in Canary Wharf with our baby rabbit, Bijoux. Bliss :)”

I got to know Aldrian and Mei Mei through a friend of mine, Adelene, who was Aldrian’s sister. I had never met them before, and all correspondence was done online, until they came back for the wedding itself. Since they were not in KL, it helped that they had a wedding planner to coordinate everything. I first heard about the winter wedding theme from Mun Tzin of Milestones… and I wondered how it would really look like. Frankly, I was a little hesitant at first, as coloured lighting in a ballroom can either work for you or against you. I have photographed some events with extremely strong multi-coloured lighting shining on stage, and the results… well, let’s say I was less than pleased with it.
Some colours tend to bleed onto skin tones, making people look overly purple or green. I was quite concerned that the light would be too strong and we would end up with shots that look like we were at a Smurf convention (sorry, Mei Mei!). But when I arrived at the ballroom that day, I was pleased to see that the blue light was not direct lighting, and that the stage had yellow light, which added warmth to the skin tones! So I loved the end results!
Be prepared, this is a super long post with heaps of photos! Sorry if it is taking too long to load, but I can’t help myself!
It was a fairytale wedding ceremony, held at the beautiful garden and beach side of Batu Feringgi, Penang, but yet, a very rock and roll wedding reception only because it was at the new Hard Rock Hotel! We were so looking forward to this wedding because we knew it was going to be something different, something special, and we were right, it’s definitely one of the most beautiful weddings we’ve shot thus far!
Kennon’s from the US Air Force, and Mabel’s from Singapore Airlines. God, working His miracles, brought these two lovely people together. When Mabel had her off days from flying, she met up with me together with her parents and very quickly, we got things settled. We finally met both Kennon and Mabel the day before the wedding at her parents’ place in Tanjung Tokong when they had dinner and tea ceremony. It was such a sweet sight to see him all over her, and likewise her all over him! As you watch the highlights, you can tell how they both enjoy each other so very much :) And his American friends really enjoyed our culture, especially the “Yam Seng”! :D Enjoy it as much as we did! :)
It was truly a touching and memorable wedding for the team. It’s weddings like these that remind me why we are doing what we do. That behind all these images are two people who are absolutely in love with each other. It’s a celebration of love, hope and gratefulness. I think my grin matched Roger’s that day. Everyone was happy. It was perfect.
Roger and Cheryl first met in college during the induction session. They were course mates but initially, they didn’t interact as much. She was very much reserved and quiet – always very focused in discussions and lectures; she didn’t have much to say… or perhaps, not to Roger anyway. He was the geek in the bunch, mostly spending time in the library summarizing lecture notes and studying.
It was only after a year that Roger started taking an interest in Cheryl. Though she didn’t say much but it was the quietness that caught his attention. Life then became more interesting for him; he was able to know her better day to day. Somehow it gave him a reason to be closer to her.
Time soon flew by and it was their final year in university. Eventually, after much deliberation, Roger finally mustered the courage to ask her out – but it was only enough to do so through MSN! It certainly didn’t make a good impression of him, but she agreed to the first date. Not long after, they officially got together on 24th June 2004, right after the first semester exams.
And that, was the start of an extraordinary journey for the both of them.
